Glossybox July 2014

I just received my last Glossybox, so, as usual, I jump on my computer to share the content with you !!

As a reminder, here is my marks system :


0/5 : I don't like anything in the product, neither the packaging, nor the product itself.
1/5 : I don't like the product but it did worth a try !
2/5 : The product is ok, but the packaging really sucks !
3/5 : Everything is ok, but as soon as I tried it, I forget it...
4/5 : The product was good, but I won't buy it, except if I don't find anything better.
5/5 : The product is really good and I definitely will buy it again !!!

Now beware : spoiler alerts !!!!

This month, the box is quite good but not as exiting as last time. I let you see what products were inside :


  • MITCHELL AND PEACH Body Cream (1/5)
At first sight, I like the very simple packaging. The cream itself, I'm not really found of... The texture is great : light, easy to apply and without any greasy feeling left over. But I hate the smell !!  It smells like a bad and cheap soap you can find in a creepy hotel...Too bad, this cream would have been good otherwise !

  • GLAMGLOW Youthmud Tinglexfoliate treatment (1/5)
I already had a Glamglow product in a french box, and this brand was very acclaimed (but maybe only because it came from Hollywood, I don't know...). I didn't try it though. The amount of product is fair so I think I will be able to use it several times and have a pretty good opinion of it !

Edit :

I tried it several times and I haven't notive any results on my skin. And since it's not pleasant to apply, I definitely won't buy it (I like the algae smell, but it's really hard on my skin, and I can only apply it on my forehead, otherwise it hurts)
  • SKIN INC Custom-blended anti-aging serum (waiting for a test)
I don't know if the serum is effective (and I will probably never know since I don't need anti-aging products for now), but the packaging is great !! It seems really easy to apply and the serum is soo pretty !! I can't wait for using it !!!

  • PHILIP B PH Restorative detangling toning mist (waiting for test)
This product arrives just in time ! Indeed I currently have so much trouble to untangle my hair that I would try everything !!! I usually don't like very much using a product for my hair without rinse it, but I will make an exception and come back very soon to give you my impressions !

  • MALIN + GOETZ Mojito lip balm (4,5/5)
For this product, I put a 4,5 because it was hard for me to decide between a 4 or a 5. I really love this product. So much that I'm weak and use it instead of the other lip balms that I have to finish... However, I'm not sure I will buy it again, because I also love some other balms....
Anyway, I think, you'll be very happy with it. It's really comfy : easy to apply and the hydration feeling stays for a long time. Moreover it has a sweet mojito flavor and a glossy (but non-sticky) look. If, unlike me, you don't have a zillion lip balms you're crazy about, or if you miss holidays, I really advise you to buy it !


Conclusion :

If I wasn't really exited when I opened the box, I'm pretty happy with it in the end. I will use all the products and probably like all but 1 (I keep you updated about this). So, this month was quite a bargain !

Here is the box !




Beauty Products

  • MY LITTLE BEAUTY Gommage visage à la pulpe de coco (waiting for a test)
This scrub is supposed to be eco-friendly and good for the skin. I don't know if it's efficient, but it's smell really good the coconut !!


  • HIP Ultra shine shampoo (4/5)
There were several versions for this item :

1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,10) a Hip shampoo (yeah)
5) a Toni&Guy spray (I'm not a fan of the brand, so no)

I didn't know this brand, but I like the packaging and the fact that it doesn't have any paraben (not that I really care, it's just that all the shampoos without paraben I tried were very effective !) Let's try !
After test : When applied, the shampoo lathers well and is easy to use. As for the results I wouldn't say that my hair was shiny, it was brighter, but actually kind of dull... It was however really soft and light, so the kind of hair you like to stroke ! :-)



  • THE BEAUTYIT Nail polish by Enjoy Phoenix (4/5)
There were several versions of this one :

1) an Arcancil pencil (I like it but I already have it)
2) Givenchy mascara and Mister radiants samples (I would have love that !)
3) a Marionnaud lipstick (I like this brand, but no...)
4) a L'atelier Cologne perfume (I don't like to receive perfumes...)
5,9) a Essie nail polish (yeah, but it's too small)
6) A The Beautyst nail polish (yeah, if it's the one I wanted)
7) a cherry Carmex lipbalm (no ! I don't like cherry)
8) a Oolution face cream (I already got it and didn't like it)
10) a Sultane de Sabane body cream (Yeah I love this brand and I used to go there for my hair removal)

Last mounth I received the green one by Carnet Prune and I told you I would have prefer the pink one... And here it is !!
What I thought last month didn't change so here is last month's comment :

"I already had a nail polish from The Beautyst that I absolutely LOVE !!! It's the red one by Simone. The color was perfect, the nail was easy to put ans had a perfect finish. So I waited at least the same with this new one...except this one is really hard to apply !! But once it's applied, it's really pretty, so I'm not totally disappointed !




There were 3 colors possible : mint, bubble gum and peach. I was secretly hopping for bubble gum, but mint is really a bezautiful color. Even more beautiful, when you put it on your nails !!


"
And here is my new pink polish, which I like very much :-)



However, I'm not really pleased to receive twice the same product (even if it's not the same color) and I wrote to the company. Let's see what they say...

Goodies

  • DELSEY Travel stickers (3/5)
I already had a great luggage tag with My Little Box, so these stickers seem a little cheap next to it... And I'm not sure if they will resist to the airport luggage carrier (even my Samsonite valise didn't...). But I have to say, that they're cute and fun. Even the wrap is pretty. Kanako (My Little Box's drawer) did a great job as usual !!


  • MY LITTLE BOX Paréo (Waiting for test)
It may seem weird that I didn't try the paréo, but there is an explanation... I received it in pink whereas it existed also in green and blue. Since I don't like pink and I have the nicest sister ever who received it in blue, she'll exchange it with me and that's why I have to wait before opening it !! :-)
But for what I've seen so far, the fabric is really soft and seems and I like the design very much :-)



Extras

As usual, you can also find in your box the magazine My Little World, a card and a sticker (you can see them on the first picture). The magazine isn't really interesting this time and the sticker is cute, but that's all. As for the car, usually they're cardboard, but this time, it's a very thin paper which seems really fragile. Moreover, it used to be Kanako's drawing, and this time, it's just a picture with a stupid sentence...As you can see, I didn't appreciate !!!!
Nevertheless, I really loved the box. They're usually nice, but this one, is brilliant !!! (and I like when you they're also special on the side, so it's easy to distinguish them ^^)


Conclusion :

Even if the products were not fabulous, the global contents are nice and fit to the summer theme. So it was a good surprise !

Beauty Products

  • MY LITTLE BEAUTY Poudre bronzante (4/5)
This sun powder does exactly what it's supposed to. It makes us look like we're coming back from a beach week-end. It's not too much neither, but I have to say that I now have a tanned skin (everything is relative, I had a white skin before, and now my skin is creamy) and that ,maybe, it's too much for fair skins. However, I didn't give a 5/5 because I'm using right now the Guerlain's Terracotta which is also great and has a mirror (in contrary to this one).



  • AUSSIE Miracle Reconstructor (4/5)
There were several option for this one :

1 : a AUSSIE hair care (yeah !)
2 : a NUXE care (yeah !)

This brand already exists for a long time in the US, but in France, it's quiet new. This hair mask is supposed to give us healthy and brilliant hair. Let's try !

Edit 15/10/2015
This cream doesn't make miracles but it's a good product that let the hair shiny. It has also a great smell : the same that the Malabar candies !!



  • THE BEAUTYIT Nail polish by Carnet Prune (4/5)
I already had a nail polish from The Beautyst that I absolutely LOVE !!! It's the red one by Simone. The color was perfect, the nail was easy to put ans had a perfect finish. So I waited at least the same with this new one...except this one is really hard to apply !! But once it's applied, it's really pretty, so I'm not totally disappointed !

Goodies

  • SPECIAL K Crunchy Muesli (4/5)


I don't like when there is food in the boxes. I prefer to have an other extra or gadget. But I tested it anyways. I had the one with cranberries, pumpkin seeds and almonds and this is funny because it's almost the same test that the bar I had in the Glossybox. The taste is good so, it's not really what I like to have for breakfast but maybe I'll buy some to change sometimes ! (except it doesn't seem to exist in the US)


  • EMILIE LE DUC Market Bage (1/5)
Actually, I'm kind of mean when I say I don't like it. For a market bag, it's pretty. But... here I'm not going to the farmer's market like I used to (I used to go in France to have fresh and cheap products, and farmers market are not really like this here...). Moreover, I used to take a bigger bag with me, because you cannot put all the groceries in such a small bag ! I cannot use the bag for the beach either, because it's not really handy... Well, to conclude, it's a cute bag, that you cannot use !!



Extras

As usual, you can find in your box the magazine My Little World. I usually like very much this magazine, but this time I didn't find anything really interesting. So I just pu the cover to let you see.
